    Loved working at the Library in the early 70’s. Thank you Linda Hellyer for hiring me! Great people – Bea Quimby, Mrs. Zempke (spelling?) – what a task master – got things done, Jeannette, Marsha, Lucy, and all – you were so much fun! Got to go out on the bookmobile, clean and repair books with Bea – wonderful woman, worked on overdue books…..wonderful memories. Thank-you. Joey McAlpine
